      I read the date on the image as 6-11-87, but every thing else in the image looks to predate that considerably:

        The date is 6-11-51, the 5 is sloppy which makes it hard to read. Given the date, the car was well under a year old. I suspect the owner was not used to that V-8 power.

        You can read the date better at the top of the first image.

            Is that 58th and Vermont in Los Angeles?
            The RR tracks don't go that far into LA now days. They still run down the middle of Vermont farther south though. There are tracks that paralell Slauson Ave which is between 58th pl. and 58th st. I am pretty sure it is LA since there is a "Boys" market in the pic and I think Boys markets were a So Cal thing, same with Kirby shoes...not positive about that though.

                Amazing what some people will do for a free car wash.

                        Maybe the guy was checking to see if any of the door/window gaskets were leaking....bet the trunk got full of water.

                          Hey look! All that change, and there's still a fire hydrant there in the same spot. I guess some things never change.

                            Bet Kirby's had a run on rubbers that day!
                            No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

                              That would surely clean all the old grease and oil off the bottom of that Studebaker! CASO steam cleaning!
